MARINE NOTICE No. 22 of 2019
SHANNON NAVIGATION
Limerick

Silting – Passage recommended 1-2 hours before High Tide

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all Masters of vessels and water users that a recent Hydrographic survey on the approach from Shannon Bridge to Sarsfield Lock revealed that the Navigation channel and the Dock area has silted up.

Masters of vessels and water users are advised to navigate to the Lock from Shannon bridge on a rising tide one or two hours before High Tide.

Waterways Ireland thanks all vessel owners and operators for their co-operation in relation to this matter.

mmmh….!
1-2hours before HW on a rising tide, will that not make it very difficult(impassable) for vessels wit a high air draft?

I intend to visit Limerick later this season. I would want to stay again at the jetties behind the tax office before going down the estuary. I understand the silting has been a long standing issue. Are there any plans to address it as this surely takes away from the amenity. I wonder would it be safe to arrive at high tide and leave at high tide without
risk of engine damage. I have a 26ft sports cruiser.
